Jason and the Argonauts is an important work of cinematography, one of Harryhausen's materpieces. I've enjoyed the DVD version, and now have the Blu-Ray version. The high definition remastering and Blu-Ray transfer appear to be first rate as though filmed in high-definition as befits this fine film. Peter Jackson's Post-Production Studio performed the high definition remastering which appears to have been lovingly compiled frame by frame. Not surprisingly with an important work, this Blu-Ray version includes Extras such as commentary by the likes of Peter Jackson.

Mircea Eliade defined the triviality as the absence of physical tension in the human being.
If we agree this concept ; then the argonauts represent the fight against the triviality. Notice for instance the greek meaning of Argos: the white ship. And the white color means purification.
The seek of the golden fleece means the search for the triumph of the truth ; since the gold symbolizes spirituality and the fleece innocence ; the circle is completed.
Besides the mission has one last goal: to fight against the dragon and exterminate it ; because the fleece is its prisoner . The dragon symbolizes the perversity ; so if you want to access to the sublimity . you must to kill the dragon.
This movie is a winner. Ray Harryhausen inspired to many film makers , specially a teenager called Steven Spielberg who confessed this confidence to James Lipton in The actor's studio .
The mythical monsters are the magnificient background all along the movie. A film conceived as family entertainment but loaded of smart clues , who teachs us the huge wisdom who lives beneath the underestimated term myth: wrong choice as you know.
Great special effects ; and from all standpoints a cult movie since its release.!

This is a great popcorn movie - swashbuckling, mythic, and a little quaint by today's effects standards. The effects, acting, and visual style all work together well, though. It can't be compared to today's movies any more than Charlie Chaplain can.
Once you allow yourself into its mood, it's great entertainment. Treasure is captured, danger is faced, and other-wordly foes are defeated. Keep it around for a rainy saturday, and make sure you have popcorn.

It's amazing that so many science fiction/fantasy movies that were made in the 40's and 50's seem to be more outdated with each passing year. They were largely B-movies and deserve to be forgotten. But much of Ray Harryhausen's work still looks good, and that's easy to see why because he worked very hard on his stop motion models work and kept redifining how to process the visual effects fim work into the live action scenes so that it looked both beliveable and realistic. He also formed a good working relationship with composer/conductor Bernard Herrmann whose music added to the sense of wonder that Ray created with his stop motion work. This movie was the best project they ever worked on. Great story, great actors, and very smooth editing of both effects work and music score. If you only buy a few of Ray's movies on DVD, get this one, as well as 7th Voyage of Sinbad and Mysterious Island. They are all great.

Someday. Someday I'm going to invest on a 50' screen television and
this is going to be the first movie I watch,The way it's suppose to
be seen in all it's Fantasy Sword & Sandal glory. Again as in "The
7th voyage of Sinbad" Columbia pulls no stops in presenting a great
story with mythical characters & monsters abound. Talos, the bronze
giant, The devilish harpies, The seven headed Hydra who guards that
of the golden fleece and of course the battle of the seven skeleton
warriors which is now film folklore.
Harryhausen's effects combined with Herrmann's music score
(Is there any conductor's work more thunderous than Talos'march?)
are top notch As are the cast of Honor (Goldfinger) Blackman and
Nigil McGullis and Todd Armstrong. I always thought it was great
to have Hercules portrayed as his older self and not in the same
beefcake manner traditionally presented at that time(Speaking of
this film raised the bar for sword & fantasy to follow (none ever
reaching it's status "Hercules in the haunted world" "Goliath and
the Dragon" to name a few) I only gave the dvd 4 stars because of
lack of the "HarryHausen Chronicles" and the ORIGINAL trailer.

Ray Harryhausen's stop-motion special effects shine in this 1963 version of the classic Greek Myth. Despite some questionable acting by Todd Armstrong (Jason) and others,the basic script and screenplay capture the adventurous spirit of the fabled story. The poor acting is redeemed by the inclusion of more seasoned theatrical actors who give the film and story weight.
Although some of the film's special effects such as the clashing rocks and the hydra might seem corny by today's CGI standards, Harryhausen's brilliant work on harpies and the skeleton armies gives the film its special place in the annals of film history. So join Jason on his quest for his lawful claim to the throne of Thessaly by seeking the Golden Fleece in the distant land of Colchis. It's an adventure not to be missed.
